Egyptian Double In Ireland

Egypt has much cause to celebrate a fine double victory in the Cannon Kirk Homes Open squash finals today. Both Irish Open champions are from Egypt.

Their womenís rising star, eighteen year old, Nour El Tayeb,*4 won a dramatic and exhausting match in one hour fifty minutes: a world record for a womenís game, the previous record was one hour forty five minutes. Her opponent Hawkes*3 raced off to a 2 game lead, and led the third game 8/5, the more experienced Hawkes looked to have the match well under control, needing only 3 points for the title. The very talented El Tayeb tighted her game a little and eliminated her error count and suddenly it was 2 games all. Hawkes had a match ball in the fourth game but El Tayeb went on to level the match at 2 all. The fifth game went all the way, Hawkes had 2 further match balls and El Tayeb had to wait for her fourth match point before winning her first Irish Open title. Her athleticism and stroke range produced squash that left the crowd gasping.

The menís final saw the defeat of Stewart Boswell( AUS) *1 by the unseeded Tarek Momen ( EGY). Momen has a world ranking of 24 and Boswell is 21 so it was inevitable it would be a encounter. However, Momen chased down every ball from the start and never looked likely to lose even when her lost the third game.


Perry & Ghosal Downed By Injuries In Dublin

 

Women's favourite Madeline Perry and men's third seed Saurav Ghosal both exited prematurely from the Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Squash Open after suffering injuries during the semi-finals of the established international Tour event at the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in Dublin.

 

In the womenís WISPA World Tour Silver 20 event, Ireland's defending champion Madeline Perry struggled from the start of her match against Jaclyn Hawkes and seemed to reach every ball a fraction too late to impose herself on the third seed from New Zealand.

 

Trailing two games down, the world No3 from Belfast conceded the match.  Perry said she had injured her back following her quarter final match against Italian Manuela Manetta and was unable to move freely.

 

Winner of the title four times since 2005, Perry expressed great disappointment at not being able to continue her challenge for her fifth Irish Open squash title:  "But I will be back to challenge next year," said the Irish star.

 

Hawkes, now celebrating her tenth WISPA Tour final appearance, will face Nour El Tayeb, the rising star of women's squash in Egypt. 

 

The 18-year-old fourth seed brought to an end the distinguished squash career of Dutch star Vanessa Atkinson, the 35-year-old former world number one and winner of 24 WISPA Tour titles who was competing in her final Tour event.

 

Atkinson, winner of the Irish Open title in 2003 and 2004 and runner-up last year, twice led the Cairo teenager Ė but El Tayeb played with confidence and intelligence to eventually wear down the former world champion 7-11, 11-7, 10-12, 11-1, 11-3 in 44 minutes to reach the second Tour final of her young career.

 

India's Saurav Ghosal was forced to retire in the semi-finals of the menís PSA World Tour International 25 event after leading by two games and looking very much in control of the match against unseeded Egyptian Tarek Momen.

 

Leading 7-4 in the third game, a sudden injury forced him off court for treatment.  The Kolkata-born world No23 returned to the court, clearly impaired, and tried his best to win the final four points needed to seal the match.

 

However, despite reaching ten-all, the 24-year-old was unable to make any further impression and, on the advice of a doctor, was forced to retire Ė leaving Momen to move through to the final after his 8-11, 2-11, 12-10 (ret.) victory.

 

Momen, the world No24 from Cairo now in his sixth Tour final, will face top seed Stewart Boswell after the world No20 from Australia ended the run of Spaniard Borja Golan, three times a finalist in Dublin, 6-11, 11-4, 11-7, 11-5 in 58 minutes.

 

Boswell, the 32-year-old former world No4 from Canberra, is celebrating his 35th PSA Tour final.

Tarek Takes Out Tuominen In Dublin

 

Egyptís unseeded Tarek Momen denied Olli Tuominen the chance of celebrating his 32nd birthday in the semi-finals of the Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Open when he upset the second-seeded Finn in the quarter-finals of the menís PSA World Tour International 25 squash event at the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in Dublin.

 

Momen, playing in his first Tour event since graduating with an Electronic Engineering degree from the American University in Cairo, defeated Tuominen, the world No22, 11-4, 8-11, 11-6, 11-6.

 

The 23-year-old world No24 will now face third seed Saurav Ghosal for a place in the final.  Ghosal, the world No23 from India, beat compatriot and Leeds house-mate Siddharth Suchde, a qualifier from Mumbai, 11-4, 11-6, 11-6.

 

Spainís Borja Golan is one match away from his fourth appearance in the final since 2006 after beating Frenchman Mathieu Castagnet 11-9, 11-8, 11-1. 

 

The former world No10 from Santiago de Compostela now faces Australian Stewart Boswell after the event favourite battled for five games to overcome Englandís Chris Ryder 11-5, 11-4, 8-11, 4-11, 11-2.

 

Irish eyes are still smiling in the womenís WISPA World Tour Silver 20 event where defending champion Madeline Perry beat Italyís Manuela Manetta 11-7, 11-5, 11-6.

 

The 34-year-old world No3 from Belfast, seeded to win her fifth title since 2005, will now meet third seed Jaclyn Hawkes for a place in her third final in a row. 

 

New Zealander Hawkes beat Englandís No7 seed Dominique Lloyd-Walter 14-12, 11-13, 11-4, 11-3.

 

But there was disappointment for the local crowd when Sligoís sixth seed Aisling Blake went down 11-9, 11-6, 8-11, 11-7 to No2 seed Vanessa Atkinson.

 

The Dutch star, winner of the title in 2003 and 2004, now goes on to face Nour El Tayeb Ė the fourth-seeded Egyptian teenager who despatched South African qualifier Tenille Swartz 11-7, 11-6, 11-9.

 

Swartz & Golan Upset Irish Open Odds

 

Spaniard Borja Golan and South African Tenille Swartz produced notable upsets on the opening day of the Cannon Kirk Homes Irish Open, the long-established menís and womenís international squash circuit event at the Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in Dublin.

 

After surviving a close-fought five-game match to qualify for the womenís WISPA World Tour Silver 20 event, Tenille Swartz resisted a spirited fightback by fifth seed Emma Beddoes in the first round to beat the world No24 from England 11-9, 11-4, 6-11, 6-11, 11-5 in 58 minutes.

 

The 23-year-old world No47 from Cape Town, a former world No28 fighting back after shoulder surgery, now takes on 18-year-old Nour El Tayeb, the fourth seed from Egypt who despatched Englandís Victoria Lust 11-5, 11-2, 11-3 in just 20 minutes.

 

Irish number one Madeline Perry leads local hopes in the womenís event.  The 34-year-old world No3 from Belfast, seeded to win her fifth title since 2005, beat Denmarkís Line Hansen 11-3, 12-10, 11-4 Ė and will join fellow Irish star Aisling Blake in the quarter-finals.

 

Blake, the sixth seed from Sligo, ousted New Zealander Kylie Lindsay 11-7, 11-4, 11-6.

 

Three times a finalist in the championship since 2006, Borja Golan successfully began his campaign in the menís PSA World Tour International 25 event with an 11-6, 11-7, 11-9 upset over Egyptís fourth seed Mohd Ali Anwar Reda in exactly one hour.

 

The former world No10 from Santiago de Compostela is also on a comeback trail after recovering from major knee surgery.  Winner of the title in his first appearance in Dublin in 2006, Golan now faces Mathieu Castagnet, the victor after 88 minutes of a hard-fought all-French clash with qualifier Gregoire Marche, by a 9-11, 11-7, 6-11, 11-7, 11-7 margin.

 

Top-seeded Australian Stewart Boswell had to fight back from a game down to overcome Swiss star Nicolas Mueller 4-11, 11-5, 11-5, 11-4.  The UK-based world No20 will now line up against Englandís Chris Ryder, the 11-9, 11-6, 11-7 winner of a 69-minute first round battle with top Scot Alan Clyne.
